Thyroid disease is very common, with an estimated 20 million people in the United States
“Your thyroid creates and produces hormones that play a role in many different systems throughout your body. When your thyroid makes either too much or too little of these important hormones, it’s called a thyroid disease. There are several different types of thyroid disease, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroiditis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.”

Thyroid disease is very common, with an estimated 20 million people in the United States having some type of thyroid disorder. A woman is about five to eight times more likely to be diagnosed with a thyroid condition than a man.
Many of the following symptoms of hypothyroidism are experienced by patients including:
- Weight gain
- Cold and heat intolerance (cold hands and feet)
- Slowed metabolism
- Memory and concentration impairment
- Fluid retention
- Dry skin and/or hair
- Low sexual desire
- Headaches, Migraines
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Enlarged tongue
- Swollen neck
- Deep voice
- Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
- High Cholesterol and Triglycerides
- Nervousness, Anxiety and Irritability
- Hyperactivity – you may find it hard to stay still and have a lot of nervous energy
- Mood Swings
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Feeling Tired All the Time
- Sensitivity to Heat
- Muscle Weakness
- Needing to Urinate More Often Than Usual
- Persistent Thirst
- Loss of Interest in Sex
Although displaying many of these symptoms, a significant number of individuals living with thyroid disease are going on with life undiagnosed.
Who Experiences Thyroid Disease?
Thyroid disease can affect anyone — men, women, infants, teenagers, and seniors. It can be present at birth (typically hypothyroidism), and it can develop as you age (often after menopause in women).
You may be at a higher risk of developing a thyroid disease if you:
- Have a family history of thyroid disease.
- Have a medical condition (these can include pernicious anemia, type 1 diabetes, primary adrenal insufficiency, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren’s syndrome, and Turner syndrome).
- Take a medication that’s high in iodine (amiodarone).
- Are older than 60, especially in women.
- Have had treatment for a past thyroid condition or cancer (thyroidectomy or radiation).

How Compounding Pharmacies Help Address Thyroid Disease
Thyroid Hormone exists in 2 major forms:
- (T3) Triiodothyronine – is the active form of thyroid hormone produced by the thyroid gland and various tissues in the body.
- (T4) Thyroxine – is the inactive form produced exclusively by the thyroid gland.
Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) can be custom compounded in many different strengths. Sometimes, a combination of T4 and T3 may be an option for some patients, to assist them in accomplishing optimal thyroid replacement.
Desiccated porcine extract is a naturally sourced combination of T4 and T3 hormones and can be compounded into capsules that have the T3/T4 ratio that is the hallmark standard in T3/T4 medications. Porcine capsules can be compounded into custom strengths and can be compounded allergen free, gluten free, lactose free, and dye free.
Community Clinical Pharmacy has helped thousands of patients in The East Valley address thyroid imbalances, helping them significantly improve their quality of life.
A compounded thyroid medication can offer advantages that are not commercially available:
- Specific dosage strengths
- Minimize dosage variability
- Eliminate ingredients that may cause adverse reactions in patients
- Eliminate filler ingredients
- Doses can be prepared in specific amounts of T4 and T3
